Andrea Pirlo's Testimonial Match Just Got Bigger And Better

Just when you thought you couldn't be more excited for Andrea Pirlo's testimonial, more legendary names from the world of football are confirmed for the big game.

Pirlo, who has forged a glittering career after spells at Juventus, AC Milan and Inter, will host one of the most star studded testimonials of all time at the San Siro later this month.

The likes of Gianluigi Buffon, Dida, Cafu, Fabio Cannavaro, Paolo Maldini, Alessandro Costacurta, Mauro Camoranesi, Gennaro Gattuso, Frank Lampard, Rui Costa and Clarence Seedorf were all confirmed last week but Pirlo had more legends in store for us.

The strikers were all announced on Monday and boy did the beautiful bearded man hit the nail on the head with his selections.

His World Cup-winning colleagues such as Alessandro Del Piero, Alberto Gilardino, Francesco Totti and Luca Toni all feature, as do his compatriots Pippo Inzaghi, Christian Vieri and Antonio Cassano.

Andriy Shevchenko and Alexandre Pato are also in the mix.

But undoubtedly the huge news is that Brazil boys Ronaldinho and Ronaldo, who have three Ballon d'Ors between them, will both return to their old stomping ground on May 21, adding to a star-studded list of names.

It's just legend after legend, isn't it? The squad's list of accolades, both individual and collective, must be next level and it's shaping up to be one of the greatest testimonial matches ever.

As per a report from Goal, all proceeds from the fixture will be going to charity.

Make sure you tune in on May 21 because this is an event you really, really don't want to miss.
